Transform Your School with Professional Learning Communities 

Educators know that collaboration is key, but making time for meaningful collaboration with colleagues can be a challenge. That's where professional learning communities (PLCs) come in. PLCs bring educators together regularly to focus on student learning.

In a PLC, teachers work as a team to analyze data, set goals, share best practices, and refine their craft through ongoing professional development. The result? Improved teacher effectiveness and student achievement. 

PLCs are guided by four essential questions:

  1. What do we want students to learn? Collaboratively develop standards-aligned units, lessons, and assessments. 
  2. How will we know if they've learned it? Use common formative assessments to gauge student understanding and progress.
  3. What will we do if they haven't learned it? Provide timely intervention and enrichment through a multi-tiered system of support. 
  4. What will we do if they already know it? Ensure continual growth through differentiation and extension activities.

With structured protocols and administrative support, PLCs create a culture of continuous learning and reflection. Teachers feel valued as professionals, not just implementers of top-down mandates.

Want to establish successful PLCs in your school? Alludo provides online professional development for administrators, teacher leaders, and PLC teams. Customizable training and ongoing coaching covers PLC fundamentals, leadership, collaboration skills, data analysis, and more.
